GO Transit to change route 10

Go Transit recently changed route 10 to better serve the UW Oshkosh campus by stopping along Algoma Boulevard and High Avenue instead of staying on Jackson Street. “Essentially, the route serves as an intercity bus service for students, commuters and other riders needing a connection between the two cities,” Transit Operations Manager David Vickman said. “It also links GO Transit with Valley Transit for trips to and from the Fox Valley.” Route 10 has been providing service between Oshkosh and Neenah for many years, but the changes were implemented on April 20.  “This change was implemented in response to input we received from many sources,” Vickman said. “After feedback was received, staff made their recommendation to the city of Oshkosh’s Transit Advisory Board, which voted to implement the change.”  Vickman said UWO students and staff were given the opportunity to provide feedback on how route 10 would serve them better with closer service on campus. “Route 10 was also experiencing some connection issues in Neenah with Valley Transit,” Vickman said. “The new changes were able to address most of the scheduling issues and provide service on campus for UWO riders.”  Vickman said although the route 10 changes were made as a result from feedback, the timing turned out to be great because it was also a way to celebrate Earth Week.
